Spain holidays: "Spain is Fiestas"
When we say that “Spain is Fiestas”, that’s no exaggeration! On top of the ten national holidays, all over Spain, from small villages to large cities, the local populace devote a few days each year to their own local festivals.
You can land in Spain on any day in the year and there’d be a festival of some sort on.
So, a holiday to Spain is not only about the sun, sand and sea, but the opportunity to enjoy some of the local celebrations, learn about their festivities and cultural events and soak up the festival atmosphere.
Whether it’s joining in the Rioja Wine Harvest Festival in Logroño, dancing to the rhythm and passion of Tango in Granada, getting into the swing of Barcelona’s International Jazz Festival or watching contestants trying to outdo each other in the Flamenco Biennial Festival in Seville (home of flamenco), the atmosphere is bound to be electric.
The Spanish are passionate about their fiestas and you can be assured of a very colourful and exotic experience.
But Spain is also more than just fiestas and the sun, sand and sea. There’s excellent spicy food here, entertainment, arts and culture and the opportunity to visit some of the world’s greatest heritage sites.
